Keyboard shortcuts aren’t just for menu items. TextExpander lets you make “snippets” that expand into larger chunks of text or an image--anything you find yourself typing again and again, you can shorten.
iPhones have long been the offenders of waking us up in the middle of night with beeps, buzzes, and bright flashing screens. Fortunately, Apple has found a solution for those sleepless nights (and times when you'd rather just not be bothered) in the form of Do Not Disturb mode. When you place your phone in this mode, your device will remain silent until you're ready to deal with notifications.
With iOS 6 -- out today! -- Apple added a lot of useful features to the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

I have a new iMac with the newest version of OS X. I recently purchased a Magic Trackpad, and in the new system settings for Mountain Lion, I cannot find the “Double-click to drag a file or folder” option. I do, however, see the three-finger drag option.
For Lion, you ran an article about making a bootable backup of the OS X installer disk image in case of a hard drive failure. I skipped Lion, but now I have upgraded to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and would like to make a bootable installer disk.
Sometimes, securing your Mac with a password is not enough to keep it from getting compromised. There are a multitude of things you can do to keeep your Mac safe from prying eyes. Read on and we'll show you how to protect both your iOS devices and your Mac.
Who knows what Apple is announcing this Wednesday? An iPhone? A thing? Who knows? But if they do, you'll probably want to upgrade, right? And you may be wondering what to do with your current phone? You could always sell it, or you could make use of your investment and give it a new job around the house.
Mission Control debuted with OS X 10.7 Lion as a way to give you total control over what’s running on your Mac with the press of a single button (or motion of a single gesture, of course). It combined Expose and Spaces into one flashy interface, which some people found off-putting -- in many ways, it doesn’t seem to offer quite the same level of control as the older tools. Happily, this isn’t really the case. It’s just that some options are less obvious than they were, while other new options have been added that you won’t be able to live without once you start using them.
You might be wondering: "What can a hotspot do for me?" Wonders, actually. It can turn your phone into a nifty little portable Mi-Fi so that you can hook up your iPad, MacBook, or other neighboring iOS devices to it to get on the internet via your phone's wireless connection. Sure, it'll be slower than Wi-Fi, and you'll need to have an unlimited data plan lest you get charged an arm and a leg, but it's a great way to really turn your iPhone into the supercharged mini computer that it really is. Read on and we'll show you how to do it.
